    I transferred the video over to my droid but can't get any app to recognize and play it. What format do I save it in? Where do I save the video to on the droid? Which app?

    Thanks for any help

    was it a .mp4 format? I know that's one of the few formats the droid supports.

    You should be able to see it in your phone via phone memory or SD card if you have a file explorer app, check out astro.

    That's it!!

    Thanks dezymond. You had the right answer. I put a .mp4 version on the droid and played it with doubletwist. Worked like a charm.

    Thanks for the help. Now if you can just help me decide which new phone to buy.......

    No problem, glad i could help!

    all I can say to you about getting a new phone is going to the store and checking it out.
